Jordan Henderson has revealed that he aims to become a regular on the scoresheet this season after bagging a wonderful equaliser in last night's victory over Manchester City.

Liverpool drew 2-2 against their Premier League rivals in front of a packed Yankee Stadium in New York, but won out on penalties - giving the Reds an excellent chance of progressing to the final of the International Champions Cup.

With Henderson on target, both during the match and from the spot in the ensuing shoot-out, the Reds No.14 admitted that adding more goals is high on his personal agenda for the upcoming season.

"Definitely; I've got to chip in with more goals from midfield - as much as I can - so hopefully I can do a lot more of that this season," Henderson told


The midfielder also described his well-taken goal, and the pressures of taking a penalty in front of the wonderful supporters who had gathered in the historic stadium.

He added: "I think Studge [Sturridge] got in well after a good ball from Philippe [Coutinho], then it just fell to me and I managed to hit it on target - fortunately it went in.

"[There was] a little bit of pressure [when taking the penalty]. Obviously, you want to score, and it's against a top-class goalkeeper in Joe Hart so it was nice to put that one away."


After defeating Olympiacos in the opening match of the tournament, Henderson insisted the team's approach was not altered despite facing Premier League opposition, then set his sights reaching Monday's final in Miami.

He said: "We just approached the game like we always do: give 100 per cent, make sure we're pressing high and hard, try to keep the ball and penetrate the lines in behind. I thought we did that better in the second-half and we got our rewards for it.

"Hopefully we can win the last game and everybody will be looking forward to going to Miami and getting great experience - so, fingers crossed we can beat Milan."
